'I Can See Clearly Now' Singer Johnny Nash Dies at 80

Johnny Nash has died. He was 80.

The singer-songwriter, who was perhaps best known for the 1972 track "I Can See Clearly Now," died Tuesday at his home in Houston, Texas, his son told CBS Los Angeles. The singer-songwriter's cause of death was not immediately made public.

"I Can See Clearly Now" was a chart-topper, reaching No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and selling more than 1 million copies.

Born in Houston in 1940, Nash began his music career singing pop music in the '50s as a teenager, debuting the track "A Teenager Sings the Blues" in 1957. The following year saw his chart debut with a cover of "A Very Special Love" by Doris Day.
